Mumbai: Hitting back at the BJP’s allegations, Rahul Shewale, the Shiv Sena Member of Parliament (MP) on Thursday challenged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to make public the assets of Amit Shah the BJP national president and other party ministers. Shewale further dared to conduct a probe into Sena president Uddhav Thackeray’s assets and wealth.
Shewale said, “The BJP is trying to malign our image by alleging Thackeray’s involvement in the financial dealings of seven different shell companies. Before making such claims, I dare PM Modi to publicise the assets and wealth of Amit Shah along with the party’s ministers.”
“The BJP government is at control at the Centre and state. If they have guts then let them conduct a probe into Thackeray family’s wealth and his finances.
The Chief Minister lacks knowledge and have made groundless allegations thinking he can get away with it,” Shewale said.
Shewale further added that the BJP has misused the social media platforms to mislead their followers against Sena. An animated video was released on social media by the BJP which showed a tiger releasing some corrupt civic officials from prison.
Shewale further accused the BJP of copying Sena’s work which they had included it in their manifesto. “They have copied our work and included in their manifesto.”
Interestingly, Shekhar Vaishnav, the Congress party worker, claimed to have worked with BJP MP Kirit Somaiya and alleged that he is involved in the National Spot Exchange Limited (NSEL) scam and many more. Calling him a blackmailer, Vaishnav said, “Somaiya knows everything about the NSEL scam.
He has fully suppressed the scam and extorted money from some. He is a professional blackmailer. I challenge Somaiya for a live media debate.”
The Sena’s fresh salvo at the BJP comes a day after Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis dared Thackeray to publicise his wealth. Recently, BJP MP Kirit Somaiya had alleged that Thackeray was involved in the financial dealings of seven shell companies.
